This is a very nice book which doesn't forget to put a few Brontë heroines on it:
Well-Read WomenPortraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved HeroinesSamantha Hahn
50 full-color illustrations, cloth spine, debossed cover
Chronicle Books

August 2013

A treasure of a gift for the well-read woman, this collection brings together 50 stirring portraits, in watercolor and in word, of literature’s most well-read female characters. Anna Karenina, Clarissa Dalloway, Daisy Buchanan...each seems to live on the page through celebrated artist Samantha Hahn’s evocative portraits and hand-lettered quotations, with the pairing of art and text capturing all the spirit of the character as she was originally written. The book itself evokes vintage grace reimagined for contemporary taste, with a cloth spine silkscreened in a graphic pattern, debossed cover, and pages that turn with the tactile satisfaction of watercolor paper. In the hand and in the reading, here is a new classic for the book lover’s library.
The book includes portraits of Jane Eyre and Catherine Earnshaw:
